Hank Williams Biopic 'I Saw The Light' Trailer Released

(Radio.com) The first trailer for the new Hank Williams biopic I Saw The Light premiered on Tuesday (Dec 1). The film is set to hit theaters in March of 2016.

The clip gives us our first look at Tom Hiddleston as Hank, and Elizabeth Olsen as Audrey Williams and focuses on their tumultuous relationship. British actor Hiddleston does more talking than singing in the trailer, but a least one country artists is sure he's up to the task.

According to Rodney Crowell, Hiddleston spent last September at Crowell's home in Tennessee to study the life of the late singer. In a lengthy Facebook post, Crowell spoke of Hiddleston's hard work ethic in studying the life of mannerisms of Williams.

"After nearly a month spent collaborating with this gifted artist, I'm as respectful of the man's work ethic as I'm mystified by his transformational skills," Crowell wrote. 'Without a doubt, the filmmakers chose the right actor for the job." Watch the trailer here.
